  1. Liliput is the analogy even if Nikki Colk has never heard of them either. Kaito are noisier, faster, girlier; Colk mispronounces her English not as a Marlene Marder homage but so people will think she's from Sweden. But the two share a rare, rambunctious sense that noise is fun and life is livable.
  2. 90
    A taste for the exotic and a winning way with a winnowing hook leavens the most ear-shredding aural barrage, short-circuiting a connection between central nervous system and booty.

    I just can't stop playing this album, and I'm eager to get their debut. This is definitely a band to see live, but their unusual, often dischordant sound certainly does shine through on the disc. Although she's compared to the lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeas, I would have to say that Nikki Colk's sound is truly original. If you're in the mood for something new, pick up the album. It's so choice. Full Review »
